Fellowship for Completion of Degree

Fellowships for students and doctoral students about to finish their degrees

With financial support from DAAD, the International Office offers very limited assistance as financial support for the final semester of B.A., M.A. and doctoral studies (Studienabschlussbeihilfen). The allowance may be granted upon application and on one single occasion only for the duration of one semester to degree seeking students at Humboldt. However, students at Humboldt on exchange programmes are not covered by this scheme. German citizens may not apply for this scholarship. Depending on the quantity of applications, we reserve the right to award partial or whole fellowships.

How do I apply?

The following documents must be submitted:

  • Application (BA- and MA-Students)
  • Application (Doctoral Students)
  • Current proof of enrolment (Immatrikulationsbescheinigung)
